The streets of midtown at nighttime, under curfew in 2014.

Midtown was the central part of a city within a country in Eastern Europe. It was the location of a train station and a church.


In the early 2010s, midtown was under constant patrol by the PMC unit Raven Sword, officially because a resistance group, the Paradise Lost Army, had instigated a riot against a U.S. embassy. In reality, the resistance were in possession of the remains of Big Boss, which Liquid Ocelot intended to use to gain access to the SOP system.

In 2014, Solid Snake, in order to stop Liquid, stalked a resistance member in order to locate their hideout. Raven Sword continued their patrols in the area, on foot, as well as via Humvees and by chopper.

There was originally supposed to be a railroad on the stage, with a train crossing it to further give the idea of a rail setting from spy movies, but it was removed when the designers realized some problems fans may have if they tried to have Snake explore the railroads that would ruin the gameplay. In addition, the manholes that litter portions of the street were also originally intended to be used, the idea being that the resistance member Snake was stalking would use the manholes, but they ended up cut both due to programming problems and time constraints. The Midtown segment, as well as most of Act 3 by consequence, was also the section of the game to be completed prior to the game's launch, largely because of the nature of the chapter being a huge divergence from standard Metal Gear gameplay and never attempted before, even necessitating a senior developer for that specific level.[1]
